God is faithful to keep His promise. He has your best interests in mind. He is working continuously to make it all come together, even when we do not see.

Many people know the pain associated with infertility. Unfortunately we see it hurting so many around us so deeply. Many that we love and care about are hopeless beyond control, leaving us who desire to comfort them feeling helpless. 

“And by faith even Sarah, who was past childbearing age, was enabled to bear children because she considered him faithful who had made the promise.” (Hebrews 11:11)

Our hearts go out in compassion as many grieve facing  this ongoing struggle. But God’s Word brings hope. Many have watched this occur in their own family, I’ve witnessed it here within our ministry amongst sisters in Christ. I think about each of them when I read about Isaac and Rebekah in (Genesis 25:19-26) where 20 years into their marriage they were still childless. The Bible says, “The Lord answered their prayers and Rebekah became pregnant.” Think about Abraham and Sarah also.

As women, we can relate to our sisters who hurt with deep compassion.

Many infertile couples long to see God answer their prayers but not all prayers are answered exactly how we pray them.

Dear ladies who hold grief, His “no” may be a “yes” in another direction. Maybe He’s calling you to adopt. When this happens it’s another way in which God can deliver amazingly and miraculously! Or maybe He’ll give you a “peace” because He has a “specific calling” on you for something He has coming for you to do. To see God work in His perfect timing with things that can’t ever be imagined can come to fruition. It may be in His plan for you which can bring the greatest testimony of all. God’s plan is the BEST plan ever but we must surrender our will to His in order for the perfect peace to flow.

Whatever it is or whoever it is affecting, keep praying over them and seeking God’s complete will over their situation or yours. Be willing to trust God’s will, God’s way, and God’s timing.

God’s ways are not our ways. His love knows no boundaries. God absolutely knows the pain and His timing is the right timing and always remember His plan is always perfect.❤
